They were here to get medical treatment they otherwise would not have received. Some have sustained war wounds from roadside bombs and others suffer from chronic illness. While here, the kids stay with host families.</p><p> Thu, 25 Jul 2013 21:11:33 +0000 Tasnim Shamma 32060 at http://wfae.org 'Solace' For Afghani Kids In Lake Norman A New 'Foundation' For N.C.
